This is an opportunity for a civil or structural engineer to become a loss adjuster with a leading name in the industry. Their workload spans construction, power, property and utilities engineering, third party and professional indemnity risks. You will apply your existing expertise to a sector that is consistently busy and profitable, experience that will open up new career possibilities. The nature of their work means they employ a significant number of engineering, construction, and surveying professionals, many of whom are recruited direct from industry.

The role: The focus of your work will be the investigation of structural and subsidence issues effecting structures that are the subject of claims for commercial, residential, and industrial buildings. The position will cover work in the Bristol and South West region, it will be varied, tracking a claim from the point it is raised through to settlement. This will involve the survey of properties and liaison with insurers, brokers and the policy/ warranty holder. You will report to the regional manager of their property division.

About you: You should be a senior degree qualified civil or structural engineer with expertise in the survey and investigation of structural defects that ideally includes subsidence, a reoccurring cause of claims. This could have been gained with a surveying practice, consulting engineers or a property company.   If you are not already chartered, you should have plans in place to achieve this status.
